The Last Photo Shoot of The Beatles, August 1969

On 22nd August 1969, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison joined John Lennon at his newly purchased 72-acre estate with Yoko Ono at Tittenhurst Park in Sunninghill, Berkshire. The photo shoot — they didn’t realize would be their last — captured by photographers Ethan Russell and Monte Fresco and Beatles assistant Mal Evans, included the Fab Four, Yoko Ono, a very pregnant Linda McCarney, Apple Corps' press officer Derek Taylor, Paul McCartney's sheepdog Martha, and two donkeys Lennon and Ono kept on the property.
It was just a photo session. I wasn't there thinking, 'OK, this is the last photo session.' — Ringo Starr.
